The school of psychology called NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) analyses using the phantasy and the senses not only past habits of emotions, thinking or actions but also creates future habits of emotions, actions and thinking. (See e.g. https://www.amazon.com/NLP-New-Technology-Achievement-Comprehensive/dp/0688146198 )
In the NLP exercises in this book , it is as if we step out in our fantasy from our physical body, we stand in the immortal soul consciousness, and we elaborate in changing the significance of our habitual psychological roles as selves. E.g. we may disregard unimportant false selves improve more important true selves, or create new selves, in an imaginary timeline of the past present and future. In this process we involve all of our experience, other peoples experience and the correlation of inner emotions , thoughts and beliefs with the external data of the 5 senses.
